4 - Apr/2017
Welcome to the April edition of the ARK newsletter. At the end of 2016, our three annual surveys collected the opinions and attitudes of children, young people and adults living in Northern Ireland. In this newsletter, you can find out when these results will be publicly available. The newsletter also focuses on ARK's resources on autism, given that April is Autism Awareness month.
ARK surveys - 2016
During September to December 2016, ARK carried out its three attitudes surveys:
Over 7,000 people took part, and we would like to thank them all for giving their time and opinions.
An event to launch the findings of YLT and KLT surveys will take place on 10 May in Queen's University Belfast - full details are below. The results from the NILT survey will launched at an event in mid-June. More information will be available in our May newsletter.
